Synopsis

The 100 Greatest Ever Golfers by Andy Farrell

Winner of the Best Golf Book at the British Sports Book Awards 2012.

What makes a great golfer? Is it innate talent, unstinting dedication, hard graft or inner strength? Can it be measured by championships won or prize money earned? Is the perfect technique more important than an engaging personality? Since the birth in 1860 of the Open Championship, every era of golf has produced its iconic great players, and here Andy Farrell selects his candidates for the top 100. From the early Scottish professionals who pioneered the game, such as Old Tom Morris and his son, Young Tommy, through such 20th century golden greats as Bobby Jones, Babe Zaharias, Arnold Palmer and Seve Ballesteros, to the modern era of Tiger Woods and Annika Sorenstam, and the young pretenders of Yani Tseng and Rory McIlroy.

Reviews

'Everyone's story is different and inspiring in their own way which is what makes this wonderful compilation of biographies such a treat. I could never tire of hearing the stories of our great champions so whether you are an aspiring golfer or an old-timer like me who enjoys the history of the game, I have no hestitation in recommending Andy Farrell's fascinating book.' - Arnold Palmer
